Ingredients

Are you making this? 
12 jalapeno peppers
1 can cooked crab meat, 6 ounces
4 ounces smoked cheddar cheese
12 strips of bacon
24 toothpicks

Original recipe makes 12 Servings

Servings  

Preparation

1. Cut tops off of peppers. Hollow out peppers - I use a crab pick under running water and that works really well. If you don't have a crab pick, you can try any manner of thin knives or small spoons.

2. Grate cheese and put into a small bowl. Drain the canned crab very well. Mix the crab with the cheese - there should be an even mixture of crab and cheese.

3. Using your fingers and, if necessary, the blunt end of a chop stick, stuff the crab and cheese mixture into the peppers.

4. Wrap each pepper with a strip of bacon and secure with toothpicks.

5. Bake peppers on a rack that has been set in a pan, so the bacon grease can drip into the pan. Bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes, or until bacon is fully cooked.

These were awesome! Store didn't have smoked cheddar, so we used smoked provolone instead.
